This letterbox is hidden in a park adjacent to an elementary school. Both the park and school are named for the little community in northwest Portland, on the edge of Washington and Multnomah counties, in which you'll find them. They are on a road that shares the last name of an artist famous for another kind of box. The sign for the school is in the shape of a common tool that is used in the industry that gave the community it's name.

When you arrive, park in the lower lot if possible and get on the trail to the left of the courts. After you have a drink with Helen, continue down the trail for a little more than 100 steps. You should see a water-filled tree to your left. From that tree, take about eight steps down hill, crossing to the right side of the trail, to a cage of trees between two conifers. There is a tall dead tree to the left that lines up with the two conifers. Look inside the cage and you'll find an homage to the industry that named the community.

This is a good park for kids and dogs, and there are no steps, but the trail in the woods is dirt. Please let us know if you find it! Happy Hunting!
